Touch the new part. Wake it up to its existence. It is part of you now. Put your fingers on the gap between, where your humanity stops and starts, and warm it, mash the two together like a piecrust. It is a stranger, pot hard, that will slowly grow its own memories, like the ones you carry in your own body. Teach both sides—the you and the not you—that they are both loved.
